With victories in the first two weeks of the regular season, the Texans are just one win away from being on a winning streak. There’s just one thing standing in the way of your hometown team; Peyton Manning. I can’t tell you who will win this match up, but I can tell you who won’t be able to make it out on the field.
For the Texans…
Tim Dobbins : Questionable – LB – The lone injury in the Texans’ week 2 trouncing of the Jags, Dobbins came up lame on a kickoff. While most might not know him by name, he is a big loss in both the special teams and defensive game plans. Kubes told the media on Friday that Dobbins would be a game time decision. But as he didn’t practice all week, I doubt that we’ll see him on Sunday.
For the Broncos…
Chris Kuper : Out – G – Since Peyton Manning is the key for the Broncos to get a win this weekend, this injury is even more important for the Texans to come away with a “W”. As Kuper plays on the right side, it will be interesting to find out if his back up, Manny Ramirez, will be able to hold either Cody or Watt in pass protection.
That’s it. Both teams are pretty healthy, and will put up a helluva fight on Sunday. I say it’s the Texans over the Broncos, 23-17.
